WEATHER:

We're enjoying another comfortably cool morning around the area with temperatures in the 50°s but it gets a little warmer this afternoon as highs climb into the upper 70°s under partly cloudy skies. Generally, clear skies can be expected tonight as lows fall into the mid to upper 50°s by Wednesday morning. And, our nice weather continues into Wednesday with mostly sunny skies and highs in the low 80°s. A chance of rain returns to the forecast by Thursday in association with a weak cold front but rain coverage and amounts will be modest. A slight chance of showers will persist into Friday as another weak front quickly slides through. In the wake of those fronts, the stage will be set for a beautiful weekend with mostly sunny skies, near-normal temperatures and no rainfall.
